The following scripts were written by Dr. Robert Kendall impersonating SA-GO-YE WAT-HA (aka, Red Jacket) and Missionary Brother Cram speaking before the tribal chiefs of the Iroquois Nation in Western New York in 1805.
Impersonation speaking was developed by Dr. Robert Kendall who taught in the Communication Studies Department at St. Cloud State University between 1971 and 1992. Dr. Kendall described impersonation speaking in this way: "Each student chooses an historical character, does independent research on that person, write a speech, locating it in a particular year of that person's adult life, making it interesting and relevant to a [contemporary] audience, assumes that character through costume, attitude, worldview, and mannerisms, and delivers the speech to an open-invitation public."
